The Nutcracker

We can’t wait to join Clara on a magical journey with her Nutcracker through epic battles, dances with snowflakes, to the Land of the Sweets and back again!

All current, enrolled students, ages 4+ are eligible to participate in this year’s full production of The Nutcracker.

There will be a party scene, a battle scene the land of snow, the land of sweets and more! This amazing two act performance will have all of the favorite characters from Clara and her Nutcracker to Mother Ginger and the Sugar Plum Fairy. There are a wide variety of parts for a large cast, so there is room for all those who want to join in the fun!

WHEN: Dec 11th, 2021*
WHERE: California Center for the Arts, Escondido (CCAE)
TIME: TBA
HOW: We will continue to follow the County and State restrictions which currently allow for performance to be back in the theatre! We all know too well that the restrictions and guidance can and will likely change… and we already have contingency plans (and venues).

Should you have any questions or concerns regarding performance dates, safety protocols, etc., please CONTACT US.

Please note that similar to Indoor Youth Activities, the State and County Guidance for Live Indoor Events has a very specific list of requirements. These requirements cover everything from distancing and masks to event capacity and more.

We will continue to follow the requirements as the safety of our staff, the dancers and friends & family is and has always been top priority during the pandemic. We will continue to release specific details and updates as we receive them.

Our Nutcracker Auditions have passed and the cast list has been posted. That said, there still may be group rolls and other fun parts for your dancer. Rehearsals have just started, and we will close casting soon. Please be sure to CONTACT US for more information and availability. You can also check out our Nutcracker Audition Page.

The success of any performance is only made possible through our amazing volunteers! We will need do require parent volunteers for everything from chaperones and security to our wonderful flower team! Volunteer opportunities are summarized in the Nutcracker Audition Packet and you can find out more during the Audition or by Contacting Us.

Fall Registration - Enroll Today!

We are so proud of our dancers as they have grown so much, dancing in-studio and online, during these difficult times!

In-Studio

Fall Session FAQs

We plan to continue offering in-studio classes with a Zoom livestream option for families with dedicated online students or for students who need to quarantine.

Yes! Discipline and routine is a part of all dance, not just ballet. Having your dancer wear a dance dress, leotard or other approved dance attire is a large part of the discipline which also creates familiarity and routine! You can find out all of the details on our Dress Code page.

We anticipate the return of in-studio make-ups this Fall. Online make-ups will be offered if dictated by the County’s COVID safety requirements. Make-ups are not guaranteed and are limited to (2) per semester and then on a case-by-case basis. They should be reserved for unplanned absences.  Regular attendance is not only the foundation for a dancer’s growth, but also builds great lifelong habits!

Our Mommy & Me! classes are back on the schedule for the fall! We loved having dads (Mr Jason was one!), grandparents and guardians/baby sitters bring our tiniest dancers to class before the pandemic and can’t wait to see a new group of little adorable smiles this fall!
For more detailed info, check out our Mommy & Me! webpage. Still have questions? Please Contact Us!

Our fantastic Adult Program is scheduled to resume this fall. Classes are not yet on the schedule, but we plan to add them in October. For more detailed info, check out our Adult Program webpage or Contact Us!
